Excursion Reservations
Q:  When and how can I purchase Shore Excursions?
A:  We offer shore excursions for you to enjoy in every port of call we visit, and often at the end of the cruise when you disembark, which will drop you at the airport or city centre when it is finished. Shore excursions can be available from a point 6 months before your sail date and can be pre-booked up until 4 days before your cruise. After this point, you must then wait until you board to book your tours. Sometimes the excursions are not available until nearer your cruise than 6 months, so we advise to check back at regular intervals.

We no longer send out details of the shore excursions in a booklet, but full details are available for viewing or download by clicking on Before You Board and then Shore Excursions from the Tabs at the top of this page. From here you can download the brochure and log in to your reservation to book tours. You will find details of the tours themselves, the timings and pricing.

Please remember, the only way to see exactly what tours are available for your sailing, is by logging in to your reservation to view the tours online, or by downloading the brochure for your ship and sail date. If you simply browse by port, you may see details of tours which are not available on your sailing.

We offer child prices on some tours and the age limit for this is 13 and under. An infant aged 3 or younger is not charged for going on an excursion as long as they sit on a parent/guardian’s lap on any transport. Certain tours may have age, weight or height restrictions and these must be adhered to. Minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by someone over 18 to take an excursion.

If you have mobility limitations, you will find that we do offer some tours for you. Each tour will state how strenuous it is, including details of walking distances, surfaces and if steps or inclines are involved. Most vehicles we use will take a collapsible wheelchair in the luggage compartment, so if you can board a coach you can still take this kind of tour, but please bear in mind whether your destination is suitable for wheelchairs.

If you have severe mobility limitations, we ask that you contact our Miami head office by email at shorexaccess@rccl.com where they will supply you with details of the tours available on your sailing. This must be done well in advance of your sailing and all tours are subject to availability.

Tour timings are from the ship and time arriving back to the ship, if planning on doing multiple tours in one day, we advise that a period of 45 minutes is left between the end of one tour and the start of another.

If you have pre-booked your tours, the tickets will be delivered to your stateroom on the day of boarding. When you board, you can also book excursions at the Explorations desk, or through your interactive stateroom television.
